Curtiss Texas Wildcat Racer -- September 1, 2017

The Curtiss Model 22 racers Cactus Kitten and Texas Wildcat were built for American oilman Seymour E Cox to compete for the Gordon Bennett Cup races.  In the diagram, especially, the Texas Wildcat looks very modern.  The Wright racer looks less modern.
